Suicide Notes by Michael Thomas Ford

Recommended Posts

After attempting suicide fifteen year old Jeff is placed in a secure psychiatric facility for forty five days.

It sounds a grim premise for a novel, but it isn't. It's well written; funny, sad, affecting, and bound--sooner or later--to be turned into a film (a cross between 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' and 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest').

Read it, do!

My advice is read the book first. It's going to be hard for a film to capture the mood and character of the book and especially the protagonist, who's hilariously snotty and sarcastic but basically an embryonic good person. Plus films always have to cut out lots from books lest they last 12 hours, and there's too much good stuff in this one to miss.
